I am not going to write a post on how you should vote. I figure that if you are voting, you are going to vote smart by doing your own research and going to the polls well informed on the many candidates and propositions that are on the ballot. I am going to ask you to vote in this election and I am going to share the process that I will be going through as I get ready to vote early this Friday, October 29th, which is the last day to vote early in Texas before the general election which is on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November. That will be November 2nd.
During the next few days I am going to be going through the internet, to various news and campaign sites to learn more about the candidates and propositions that are going to be on the ballot. I am not exactly going to share who I will be voting for, but rather I want people to see how important voting is by taking a look at what is going to be on my ballot and looking at how I come about some of my decisions in voting. Hopefully this may encourage some of you to not only vote, but to make an informed and smart vote this election.
Just so you know, I am a liberal Democrat living in an otherwise conservative Republican voting precinct (#3119) on the northside of San Antonio, Texas. While I tend to vote Democrat, I have been known to vote for Republicans, Libertarians, Greens, and none of the above on occasion.
